Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Nov 21, 2012, 06:03 PM

A wish...

I just finished writing a ridiculous article about a dystopian Romney-led future that, joyfully, won't happen...in my mother's house, on her funny old computer...with the smell of my mom's pumpkin pie, my wife's outrageous buffalo chicken dip, and the crock pot chili we're having for dinner actively mugging my nose...all combining to make me, quite literally, insane.

This year began, for me, with half a dozen funerals for people I loved dearly. It is coming to an end with a favorable election result, a wildly healthy wife carrying our wildly healthy daughter...and this, tonight, with my mother, and my beloved.

I know full well just how lucky I am. I hope, with all that is in me, that this small space in time finds you happy and hopeful as well...and if not, if it hurts, if it's bad, I hope with everything I am that it will improve, both dramatically and soon.

Here's to my friends and family, for whom I am so grateful.

Here's to DU. Thank you so much.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.
